by monotypy and original designation
accepted valid name
Notes: Parandaspis Mamet is the senior homonym of Parandaspis Balachowsky 1968a (=Saotomaspis).
- General Remarks: Detailed description and illustration by Mamet (1967a).
- Systematics: Parandaspis is very close to Andaspis MacGillivray from which it can be distinguished by the occurrence of ventral submarginal gland tubercles on the cephalic segments and on the pro- and mesothorax. It differs from Caia Williams in the position of the anal opening which is situated at the base of the pygidium rather than towards the apex (Mamet, 1967a).
- Structure: Female scale elongate, exuviae terminal. Male scale smaller. Median lobes prominent with sides parallel and apical margin notched, with a well-developed clavate paraphysis extending from base of each lobe into the pygidium. 2nd lobes obscurely bilobed; inner lobule well-developed, with a paraphysis extending from base of each into the pygidium; outer lobule reduced. 3rd lobes represented by a conspicuous incrassation of pygidial margin. Marginal pygidial macroducts in 5-7 pairs. Dorsal ducts present in the submarginal areas of meso- and metathorax and 1st to 7th abdominal segment and in the submedian areas of 2nd to 6th segment. Gland spines present on abdominal segments; a pair between median lobes (Mamet, 1967a).
